Efficient Encodings of First-Order Horn Formulas in Equational Logic
Paper in proceedings, 2018

We present several translations from first-order Horn formulas to equational logic. The goal of these translations is to allow equational theorem provers to efficiently reason about non-equational problems. Using these translations we were able to solve 37 problems of rating 1.0 (i.e. which had not previously been automatically solved) from the TPTP.
